In 2018-2019 winter season, AH will increase ORN-IST from 2 to 3 weekly flights (237)

In winter season, AH will have 20 flights per week between Algeria and IST (12 ALG-IST, 3 ORN-IST, 3 CZL-IST, 2 AAE-IST). TK 35 flights per week (3 daily ALG-IST, 1 daily ORN-IST and 1 daily CZL-IST)

AH and TK are code sharing flights between the two countries including summer flights between Algiers and Antalya

Regarding Algerian aviation I've always wondered with the growth of the Algerian economy if either AH or BA would ever consider a LGW to ORN route as it was previously flown by BCAL in the eighties and it would be an additional entry point into the country from the UK other than Algiers.

Thank you for the thread.

This is interesting. First time I hear about it (from a quick scan, no press release from CRL authorities, and nothing in Belgian media).

This summer, CRL offers the following to Algeria, all on TUI Fly Belgium:

ALG: 2x weekly
BJA: 1x weekly
CZL: 1x weekly (combined with BJA in October)
ORN: 2x weekly
TLM: 1x weekly (combined with ORN in October)

From what I gather, the flights are pretty full (especially during the peak summer season) with fares going up steeply in July/August.
From my observations at CRL, the VAST majority of customers on those flights come from the Algerian diaspora in Belgium and northern France.

So, Air Algerie will be competing with TUI Fly Belgium on the ALG route. I seem to notice that AH suffers from a negative image in the diaspora (at least in Belgium), but then again, a bit of competition is always welcome (as is a new tail in CRL...). As a CRL local who needs to fly to Algeria from time to time (granted, not so often), I welcome the addition, if for no other reason than having a less "boring" option.

Regards

Yes, any new competition is welcomed. I guess AH wants to open CRL rather than expanding BRU or LIL (ZI withdrew from it), because of lower taxes

Any update on AH's fleet development plans; I would have thought that they'd be an ideal candidate for the 737 Max - probably 787 as well (although politics might dictate an Airbus order into its fleet mix)?

According to Algerian media, AH is planning to acquire 35 new aircraft between 2020 and 2025. The decision is awaited in December or beginning of 2019

For long haul, the 788/789 will be logical choice as current AH fleet (8 A332, 3 767-300) is using exclusively GE engines. A330neo and A350 are not proposed with GE engines

737 Max (737-8/737-9) will also be the logical choice as AH has currently 32 737-600/737-700C/737-800

ATR72-600 will be a logical choice to replace older ATR 72-500

E175/190/195-E2 will be a good add in AH fleet to fill the gap between ATR and 737 and replace 737-600

Air Algerie has transported 6.5 Million passengers in 2008, + 4% compared to 2017, this is a new record for the company

http://www.aps.dz/economie/83182-2018-a ... ransportes

in 2017, Air Algerie carried 6.25 Million Pax and was the 5th company in Africa. I don't know what is the situation of SAA in 2018 but probably AH has carried more pax than SAA and finished the year at the 4th position behind ET, MS and AT

That means Algiers-Paris is not far from Cairo-Jeddah on that table.

When you hear the political vitriol on both sides of that flight it's a bit surprising to be honest.

Considering these figures, it show that ALG-PAR routes (ORY+CDG) represents roughly 10% of the entire number of pax of whole Algeria, that's a huge dependancy ratio just for 1 city

I don't understand why Algeria does not allow visa free access for EU passport holders like Morocco or Tunis do. That would increase those numbers.

Are these flights timed to offer connections in CDG? It certainly would make sense as CDG is right on the way to North America.

I was last there in February. I was hoping to at least fly out of the new terminal but I wasn't lucky enough.

You can thank the political situation in Algeria for the standstill. The terminal has been ready for a while and was first scheduled to open at the end of January, unfortunately the ceremony was cancelled as former president Bouteflika, at the time in Geneva seeking medical care, was deemed unfit for a public appearance. Now, with the continued demonstrations in the country, opening the new terminal has been put on the back burner - word on the street is it'll be opened, along with the Grand Mosque, by the new leader once the situation stabilizes.

Personally, it's incredibly frustrating that such a significant project must suffer at the hands of Algerian politics. I wish they would open it without having to put on a big show, but then again, I remember reading an article about the Moroccan king opening the new Casablanca terminal around the same time the new ALG one was set to open, and I am reminded of the real motivations behind these projects in the first place. Sigh.
